Femi SolajaOut-of-favour Chelsea wing-back, Victor Moses, may be back to action again following the interest shown by clubs in England and the Far East.Chelsea coach, Maurizo Sarri, has declared Moses surplus to requirement since taking over from Antonio Conte. He has insisted that the Nigerian winger does not suit his game plan at Stamford Bridge. Victor Moses He did not consider Moses worthy in Chelsea’s last night Europa League game against Bate Borisov to further confirm that the former Nigerian international is not wanted anymore at the London club. Chelsea won 1-0.According to reports yesterday, the duo of Crystal Palace and Wolverhampton Wanderers where former Nigerian goalkeeper Carl Ikeme excelled have shown interest in getting the signature of Moses in the winter transfer in January.Under the former Italian Chelsea coach, Moses excelled as a right wing back in Conte’s 3-5-2 formation.Aside Palace and Wolverhampton, the current Chinese Super League champions, Shanghai SIPG have also joined the race too and should the deal for him to go to the Far East sail through, it will make the Nigerian start a new season with the club.The deal will also unite Moses with his former Chelsea teammate, Brazilian Oscar at the club.He also have former Super Eagles teammates like captain John Mikel Obi and Odion Ighalo who will help him to adjust to life in China.Sarri has continued to ignore the player who was an integral part of Conte’s squad that won the FA Cup last season.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Ilima-Lei Macfarlane is one of the most marketable fighters on the Bellator MMA roster and the reigning flyweight champion is quickly making her way through the competition. So with that in mind, why not use this space to introduce you to someone who could find herself standing across the cage from “The Illiminator” somewhere down the line if everything breaks the right way?Join DAZN and watch Bellator 218 plus more than 100 fight nights a yearWhile just 2-0 in her professional mixed martial arts career, Hermansson is one to keep tabs on as she enters the Bellator MMA cage for the first time this weekend in a preliminary card pairing with Victoria Leonardo.Hermansson has come out on the happy side of split decision verdicts in each of her first two starts, with her last appearance coming last April under the Cage Warriors banner. Prior to making the transition to MMA, however, the Swedish flyweight competed in the boxing ring, racking up more than 50 bouts by her count while medaling at the national level.And at this stage of her development and the development of the Bellator women’s flyweight division, a sound background in a core martial art coupled with a little bit of toughness and strength could be enough to pick up the wins needed in order to secure a title shot.Combing through her social media pages, “The Herminator,” who gets bonus marks for such a terrific nickname, appears to be in tremendous shape and naturally athletic, two additional elements that will potentially aid in her ability to make an expedited climb up the flyweight rankings.Some people may want to take this as a slight, but the female ranks are several years behind where their male counterparts are at the moment. As such, fighters who are athletically sound and skilled in an individual disciple have a great opportunity to succeed. Hermansson appears to fit that description and if that is the case, she could make a quick rise up the rankings.This weekend’s fight with Leonardo will be an outstanding indicator of where she stands, as the Louisiana native is coming off a first-round submission win over Jamie Milanowski at Invicta FC 34 and sports a 4-1 overall record inside the cage. She’s faced some familiar names while competing across three disciplines, having beaten Ariel Beck in a boxing match and lost to Shannon Sinn in a kickboxing bout, along with facing Hailey Cowan, Salina Rowland and Miranda Maverick in MMA bouts, so if Hermansson can cruise into Bellator 218 and hand Leonardo her second loss, it will indicate that she’s already on the cusp of contention and someone who indeed possesses championship upside.Fights like this often go overlooked because the athletes are unknown to everyone but the hardest of hardcore fans, but the reality is that in a shallow division with a dominant champion, a couple solid performances is all it takes for someone like Hermansson (or Leonardo) to put themselves in position to fight for the title or at the very least, face off with one of the more established contenders in the division with a title shot hanging in the balance.Hermansson profiles as someone who could make an immediate impact in the division and although her Bellator MMA debut is stationed on the preliminary portion of this week’s card, you should make a point of checking it out because eight, 10, 12 months down the line, she could emerge as a challenger for the flyweight title. Prior to every event, Under the Radar will cast the spotlight on an up-and-coming talent who shows the potential for growth in their division and isn’t getting enough attention as they head into battle.Name: Malin HermanssonRecord: 2-0 overall; Bellator MMA debutDivision: FlyweightTeam: Akademi Nord

BALTIMORE (AP) — Nearly 50,000 people have signed an online petition asking for the removal of a statute of retired Baltimore Ravens star Ray Lewis after he joined other NFL players kneeling during the national anthem.The petition on change.org says the anthem honors the United States and its veterans. It reads: “To kneel during it is disrespectful, regardless of what you are protesting.”A Maryland Stadium Authority spokeswoman told The Baltimore Sun extra security has been added to M&T Bank Stadium, including the plaza where Lewis’ statue is located.Many other players also knelt Sunday in response to President Donald Trump’s call for owners to fire players who refuse to stand during the anthem.Lewis said on “Inside the NFL” that he prayed while he knelt to “simply honor God in the midst of chaos.”
